If you are already familiar with this game, you’re going to love our version of it!
Shithead is very popular amongst travelers all over the world. It is simple to learn and fun to play. Similar to other well known card games it can be played with a standard poker cards deck. The target of the game is not to be the last one getting rid of all your cards.
Because Shithead is so widely spread all over the continents, there are also several ways to play Shithead. We incorporated this by defining a standard rule set and allowing the player to optionally enable several more rules. We tried to keep it as simple as possible, giving you enough flexibility at the same time. Nevertheless, enabling all the optional rules makes the game the most fun to play!

This version of palace is two player, you versus computer. There are eight different computer characters you can play against, each with slightly different playing styles.
1. Tap on cards to select/deselect. You can select one or more cards of the same kind. Click on the discard pile or use swipe gesture to discard selected cards.
2. Use the Undo button (top right of screen) to undo last move if you make a mistake.
3. Turn screen sideways to make view wider when you have a lot of cards in your hand.
Each player is dealt 3 'face down cards'. You are not allowed to see or change these until the end of the game. Next, 3 'face up cards' are placed on top. Finally, each player is dealt 3 cards to form their hand. If you wish, you can switch cards from your 'hand' with your 'face up cards'.";
Whoever has a 3 or the next lowest card starts the game.
Each turn you must discard a card (or two or more cards of the same) greater than or equal to the one at the top of the pick up pile, then draw cards from the deck so you have at least 3 cards in your hand (unless the deck has run out of cards or you already have 3 or more cards in you hand).
2's and 10's are wild cards. 2's resets the pile and 10's clear the pile. 4 of a kind, like a 10, clears the pile.
If don't have a card that is greater than or equal to the card on top of the pile or a wild card, you must pick up the entire pile.
When there are no more cards in your hand, and the deck is empty, proceed to play your face up cards. Once all of the face up cards have been played, play the face down cards.
If you are the first to get rid of all your cards you win.
